Percy Cerutty would never have tolerated a kipping pullup.

This is from Peter Coe's USATF Level III lecture some years ago:



Sun: 4X1500 or 3X2000 (5K pace)
Mon: Fartlek
Tue: 8X800 (3K pace)
Wed: Road Run
Thu: 16X200 (1500 pace)
Fri: Rest or fartlek
Sat: Race or Time Trial
Sun: 4-6X400 (800 pace)
Mon: Road Run
Tue: 2X300+4X200+4X100 (400 pace)
Wed: Fartlek
Thu: Time trial
Fri: 100m accelerations or pace change workout
Sat: Rest



That's the running, then you add in the weights and everything else he did.

If you think a crosfitter can do that, why don't you try it? Most people who are not Coe are going to find this to be extremely hard.

Jesus did cross training, but unfortunately died doing it.
